The Scorpio was able to take the lead from the beginning and maintained it till the end of the race. However, the gap was not too large.

The team decided to perform a few rounds after swapping the drivers. This ensures that the results are consistent by taking into consideration the driving mannerisms of different drivers. However, the driver behind the wheel of the Scorpio now is not well-versed in the manual transmission. As a result, he ended up losing the subsequent rounds. But that can’t be attributed to the SUV. Hence, it could be safely concluded that the Scorpio N is the quicker of the two SUVs at least on a drag strip.
